Eat Boutique Gourmet Foodie Gift Box

I’m all about boutique eats. You know, the little guys. The local companies producing amazing and delicious products. The beauty is that they are not name brands; they feel like your own little secret that you just want to share with the world (or hoard all for yourself, depending on the day). There is a spirit, a passion in the food that you just don’t get with mass-produced products. As a small business owner myself I love supporting these companies. If that means using what little ‘juice’ I might have with this blog of mine, than so be it.

So when Maggie of EatBoutique got in touch with me about her new gourmet gift boxes, I just had to try.

And as soon as I tried, I knew I had to share.

Eat Boutique Gourmet Foodie Gift Box

This particular box is touted as a Valentine’s box. I know we all love our Valentine’s treats, but a box like this trumps a dozen roses and a box of ho-hum chocolates any day. Filled with locally-produced goodies from New York and Massachusetts, it really is a foodie’s wonderland. Bacon-coffee caramel popcorn, sea-salted caramels, chocolate raspberry cashews, melt-in-your-mouth snowball cookies, chocolate covered cocoa nibs, and a jar of deliciously sweet and spicy canned beets (that Taylor promptly claimed for himself). Oh, and Fluffy caramel chocolate chip marshmallow puffs; I may have died just a little when I tasted them.

While it is too late for Valentine’s Day, this gift box is not holiday exclusive. It’d be a great gift for any foodie in your life (or for yourself, for that matter!) and at only $55 (plus shipping), it’s a great value for the sheer amount of gourmet goodness that’s packed inside. Not to mention a truly personal touch (each box comes with a hand-written message). Even better, EatBoutique has plans for more holiday-themed gift boxes (can you say, Mother’s Day?), and boxes of year-round enjoyment. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next.
